1 Piece 2 Ways: Sequin Skirt

1112201P2WSequinSkirtShopbop stylists Loni and Karina.

It will not come as a surprise to those who know me that my favorite bird is the magpie. I’ve always shared its affinity for all things shiny. In my quest to make sparkle an acceptable year-round staple, I asked Shopbop stylists Loni and Karina for two different ways to pull off this sequined Dolan skirt in the office.

My number one rule for office sequins: steer away from anything overtly sexy. Sequins have a fun, playful vibe no matter what, so keeping the rest of the look a bit more buttoned-up and classic always works well. I opted to go with a flat shoe and a sporty top, keeping the look fun, professional, and appropriate.

On Loni:
* Dolan Wrap Skirt
* Thakoon Print Blazer
* Thakoon Print Booties

Sequins are quite a statement, so it’s important to keep the rest of your look simple and clean. Since this skirt is a little formfitting, I loosened up the top by layering a cozy sweater over a tank. It adds a nice pop of color and just the right amount of boyishness, balancing out the feminine skirt beautifully.

On Karina:
* Dolan Wrap Skirt
* Theyskens’ Theory Sweater
Maison Martin Margiela Booties
